The L.I.V.E (Living Intentionally Versus Existing) March took place on the 22nd August with protestors marching from Trafalgar Square to Kennington Park in partnership with F.A.M.E (Families Against Murders Escalating).
The march from Whitehall to Kennington Park included many young people who had come from far and wide to demonstrate their wish to make a difference in their local communities.
According to the LIVE website “‘L.I.V.E’ is about youth around the UK Living Intentionally vs just (merely) Existing. ‘Live’ aims to challenge, empower and motivate a generation of disadvantaged and advantaged youth to live for all the things that is positive and turn away all the things that are negative like the gun, drugs, and knives”.
Furthermore the L.I.V.E Campaign “seeks to turn the tide of violence among young people by challenging them to LIVE intentionally and provide an alternative to aimless living, by challenging advantaged youth to get involved in their communities and to help their fellow youth”.
The march and rally were held to raise awareness and campaign against knife and gun crime.
The event, known as the “LIVE Rally” (Living Intentionally Versus Existing), is linked to youth leaders in the 7th Day Adventist church who are marching with a group named F.A.M.E (Families against Murder Escalating).
